Visited all the typical places, took the bus tour, loved the Guinness Brewery and it’s Gravity Bar, and went to many sites found in Ulysess.

I finally got to visit Austin this year.. twice no less.

Both times I saw bands on 6th street and loved it.
Actually saw Sonny Wolf twice and boy does he rip.

A visit to the Zoo [May. 6th, 2006|07:41 pm]

I took my oldest son Orion to the National Zoo in DC today. It was a great day for it.
He enjoyed it a lot. I’d never seen pandas before.
Since the giraffe had eaten all the low hanging leaves, we saw a giraffe jump up, stick out his super long tongue and swipe some leaves. Very impressive display. The crowd gasped and in unison says ‘Whoa!’

Funny part of the story...
We were in the middle of riding the DC Metro back home when he says to me he has to go. Orion is just finished being potty trained at this point so I didn’t think to bring backup. That was dumb.
There are no bathrooms on the trains, nor in the middle stations.
I had to get off at Dupont Circle, climb the 200 yd escalator with him on my shoulders, and take him to a nearby restaurant.
Needless to say, I ignored the sign on the door saying ‘only for customers’.

I've been playing around taking digital photos of the holly in my backyard. It's been tricky getting a well focused shot while it has been windy.

This is one very impressive AJAX-ian tool. I dumped feedreader entirely off my memory constrained windows box minutes after using this Google offering. When will it stop?

WRT the Microsoft announcement about open XML for Office...

Microsoft’s tune is changing in this regard.
While Microsoft focuses so hard on Google in the next period of time you will no doubt see a lot of copying.

Pushing open standard XML formats is one of the ways Microsoft is copying Google’s forceful pushing of open standards and open source.

Another is the push on the Web 2.0 front....
